Very busy when we arrived lots of families with small children. Managed to find a table in the corner. A lot of tables too close together, gave a stuffy ambience. Real ale was excellent but the beef and pork portions were very stringy. Not as good as Bamburgh Castle Inn or Lindisfarne Inn, other hotels in an excellent group. Otherwise... More

We go here quite a bit for grub but it is not a special place, more of a place to fill up. Food menu is very diverse but a lot is not freshly prepared. Carvery Sunday lunches are very popular here and you should book. Very family friendly but you'll find you spent more than you expected when the bill... More

Great value stays available right now. Visited just before Christmas and last weekend. Very friendly and efficient staff, good sized rooms. First floor room this time had shower cubicle not over bath - very nice shower indeed. Menu looks ordinary at first glance but portions are big, presentation wonderful and cooking excellent.

What can I say! Me and a few friends decided to call in for a meal after a lovely spa day. This place really was the icing on the cake for the day! I didn't have a starter as I'm more of a dessert person so I thought I'd save myself, but the lads did and was a regret it... More

there is only one thing that stops me from giving this an "excellent" rating. The hotel is adjacent to the A1 Southbound carriageway and the noise levels in the room are disturbing. The room location is in some small part caused by our particular requests and the fact that we have a dog. There are rooms that face inward away... More

Visited on the 2nd of Jan, looking for a nice quiet meal before the back to work/school routine. Place was quiet as expected yet service was dire, took over an hour to get food and when it arrived it was really bad. Both mine and my wife's meals were cold and either the waitress forgot to bring them out when... More

Visited with in-laws. They paid! Cold partially re-heated chips, lethargic service, greasy onion rings. I had steak(it was good), my wife had scampi which was poor, the kids were fed with yet more burnt, cold, scrappy chips! It's the burnt yet cold which is difficult to comprehend. Father in law had fish and chips with peas which were all cold... More
